As we sit here on the edge of one year, and on the cusp of another, it's come time to reflect on all that 2015 has brought us, and everything that 2016 may have in-store. Our social feeds are filled with tales of triumph and sorrow, as our friends and colleagues both celebrate their victories, and mourn their losses. It's always this time of year, among the melancholy post-Christmas days when the "holiday high" wears off, that everyone either can't turn the calendar quick enough, or they wish to bask in a year of successes that they hope will never end. For our family, this was a great year - and professionally, it was likely my best year, maybe not from a financial standpoint, but one of adventure and accomplishment in all of the areas in which I'm hoping to achieve. Time for a little horn-tooting, because it's all downhill from here...
Longtime listeners might recognize the "Unholy Manipulator" as a fan-favorite and a staple of PRODUCT OF HATE live shows, but this week the song and video are back and new-to-the-world. Originally appearing on "The Unholy Manipulator EP" and the subject of an independently-released video a few years back, "Unholy Manipulator" has been re-done as part of PRODUCT OF HATE's debut album, BURIED IN VIOLENCE - set for release on February 5, 2016 via Napalm Records. The song is available now on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify, and the music video re-premiered on Bloody-Disgusting.
If you're looking for some heavy tunes to spin this Halloween, look no further than Napalm Records' Heavy Halloween Playlist - just launched on YouTube and ready for your streaming and viewing pleasure. Packed with 32 of the "most brutal, bloody and creepy" videos from the Napalm Records roster, you'll find new music and classic tracks from the likes of POWERWOLF, HUNTRESS, MEGAHERZ, ALESTORM, MOONSPELL, and a band that's very near and dear to me... PRODUCT OF HATE. Toplining the Heavy Halloween Playlist is "Unholy Manipulator" - a video that I directed and edited. Originally created as a combination music video/short film while the band was still independent, it stars HELLRAISER's Ashley Laurence as the title character in a not-for-kids slash-fest produced by Robert Kurtzman (FROM DUSK 'TIL DAWN, WISHMASTER) and featuring the production and FX skills of his Creature Corps. The video was reissued with new audio and some updates via Bloody-Disgusting, and the single just hit iTunes. "Unholy Manipulator" appears on PRODUCT OF HATE's debut album, BURIED IN VIOLENCE, out February 5, 2016 via Napalm Records. Happy Halloween!
